Default Three Timeless Truths


Here are three timeless truths that I share with you from my life
in the hope that they will be as meaningful and helpful to you as
they have been to me. Think on these things...

1. Failure is not fatal.

Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. It should
challenge us to new heights of accomplishment, not pull us to
new depths of despair. Failure is a temporary detour, not a
dead-end street. Remember, the greatest failure is the failure
to try.

2. Delays are not deadly.

Too often we equate delay with defeat. Frequently the best
thing that can happen to us is a wise delay in our plans. If
it's worth having, it's worth waiting for...and often its value is
enhanced by delay. Delays are often God's way of teaching us
the virtue of patience. And patience is more than a virtue; it is
a required course in the school of life.

3. Pressures are not permanent.

Some of the most comforting words in the Bible are these
"And it came to pass." Problems and pressures do not come
to stay...they come to pass. They are temporary, transitory,
and, like many of the irritations and vexations which we all
have experienced, will evaporate when we realize that our
internal resources are much stronger than the external
pressures. Truly, greater is the power within you than any
other power on earth.

--William Arthur Ward

Love always,


I share because I care.
